2020 Fundraising Campaign
In these unprecedented times in Central Ohio, thousands of families in our community are facing new and increasing challenges because of the devastating decline in our economy.
Broad Street Neighborhood Ministries stand at the front line of this community’s response to the COVID-19 crisis.
We anticipate increasing our investment in the community by $240,000 in the next 18 months:
• To support individuals who have lost their jobs due to the pandemic, COMPASS will double the monthly assistance allocation through the end of the year and into 2021.
• At the Food Pantry, we are seeing a 75% increase in our services with numerous first-time panty shoppers. We anticipate this demand will continue.
For those who are able to support our neighbors, your gifts will make an immediate impact as we provide food and help people stay housed as together we live out Jesus’ invitation to love our neighbor.
This year’s campaign is aligned with The Columbus Foundation’s The Big Give on June 10-11. During this 25-hour online giving event, your donation will be boosted on a pro rata basis thanks to a $1.5 million+ Bonus Pool. All credit card fees are covered by the Foundation, so 100 percent of your donation goes to Broad Street Neighborhood Ministries.

What Is God Calling
Us To Do?
Dear Broad Street Community,
As we grapple with the effects of a pandemic and ongoing injustice toward people of color, we have come to another crossroads as a nation. Many of us are wondering: What is our part in this? What is God calling us to do?
Our colleagues at Myers Park Presbyterian Church in Charlotte have made available a 21-Day Race Equity Challenge, adapted from Eddie Moore’s 21 day challenge. We and the Session, the governing body of the church, invite you to join us. For twenty-one days, we are committing to daily engagement with these different resources. There are video clips, articles, podcasts, and materials for children and families — some can be completed in just a few minutes, others will take longer, but each provides information for us to prayerfully digest as we seek to better understand the concept of race and how it affects us.
We hope you will join us in committing to this challenge. Save or print the planning tool to note what you hear, read, or watch. A Zoom confersation about the challenge is scheduled for Tuesday, June 23. For more information email Ann Palmerton at email@example.com
During the June Session meeting we articulated a hope: that when we return at last to in-person worship, we might return better than we were before. May it be so!
With gratitude and in hope,
Amy Miracle, Ann Palmerton and Brittany Porch
